HELLBLAZER #263

“India” part 3 of 4. Meeta’s dreams of Bollywood fame are threatened by a grotesque creature from the British Raj. It looks like the only person who can save her is John Constantine. But Constantine’s got a surprise visitor: someone who might just turn his life around. With greed, sex, demons and dancing, Mumbai has never been hotter than this.

  1. Digging this arc.  Artwork is beautiful and fits perfectly with the story telling.  On board for the foreseeable future.

  2. While they won’t usurp Manco as my favorite recent HB artist, Camuncoli and Landini are doing good on this book, and Milligan’s writing is keeping me interested and on-board monthly.

  3. Do you think I could pick this up and understand the story? Or should I wait until the next arch?

     

  4. @flyingtadpole – You’d probably be ok picking up this issue.  I just started reading Hellblazer with this arc, and all I know is that Constantine is in India to purge his spirituality due to losing a love interest recently.  Also a demon is killing young women to feed it’s desires.  It’s the cursed spirit of an old British military figure.  Anyone else wanna jump in?  Josh?  Sunnyvale Trash?

  5. This is probably "too long, no read" but: 

    I think dneufeld summarized the arc pretty well so far.  The true genius of any HB arc is not the setup, but the way that John gets out of it.

    I think one of the strong points of this book is that once you get to know John, you won’t be worried so much about the previous issues (and overall) stories, you’ll just want to find out how he’s gonna get out of whatever terrible situation he’s in.  It’s great when an HB writer makes reference to John’s elaborate past, but it’s never necessary to know it.

    Milligan is telling a pretty long-form story (elements from his first arcs are showing up here), but he’s doing a good job of keeping new-readers informed as to what’s going.  Dive in! 

  6. The perfect monthly comic.

  7. This was my runner-up pow. Absolutely loving this book. As great as this creative team are (they are!), I am SOOO looking forward to more Biz on the inside in two months.
